Golden Geek Awards and New Shipping Zones
As you may have heard, Root has been nominated for several Golden Geek Awards this year, including awards for Artwork and Presentation, Expansion (for the Riverfolk Expansion), Innovative, Strategy Game, Thematic Game, and Board Game of the Year.
It hardly requires saying that we are incredibly honored by these nominations. I first created my BoardGameGeek account back in 2003, and the website has been an important community for me both as a player and as a designer. I certainly would have never been able to get my first games published without it. Though the site has its share of problems, I think it remains a tremendous resource for everyone in the hobby.
For those not familiar with the award, only BGG users who have supported the site or have an avatar or a geekbadge are eligible to vote. Voting is done using the Schulze method, which is a type of voting where you get to rank your preferences from a list of nominees. It’s pretty fun and a nice way to take stock of the previous year of gaming. Regardless of who you vote for, I’d encourage the active BGG users among us to vote.
We received a lot of feedback on adding additional shipping zones to our campaign and we're pleased to say that we've expanded shipping to several new countries: Peru, Russia, India, Israel, South Africa, Argentina, Vietnam, Costa Rica, Serbia, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, and Brunei. Prices can be found on the shipping graphic on the main project page.
We understand there's a great demand for shipping to Brazil and although we haven't added Brazil yet, we're still figuring out our options and are trying what we can to get the best and most reliable rates to Brazil. Please stay tuned and hopefully we'll have good news soon.
